Editorial Reviews

Limited CD/DVD edition includes bonus DVD containg 40 minutes of excluisve content. 2009 release from Michigan's oddball sons of molten melodic Death Metal. Classical-come-apocalyptic; violently energetic yet melodiously beautiful, Deflorate sees the songwriting of band leader and rhythm guitarist Brian Eschbach at its most developed and refined, exponentially complimented by contributions from both bass savant Bart Williams and newcomer guitarist/shred lord Ryan Knight (ex - Arsis), whose leads are destined to dazzle fans and take the band's punishing potency to dramatic new heights. Combined with the intense performances of uniquely charismatic howler/growler Trevor Strnad and rising extreme drumming star Shannon Lucas, the cannon of talent possessed by The Black Dahlia Murder is more stacked to destroy than ever! Recorded at the famed Audio Hammer Studios by production wizard Jason Suecof and engineering talent Mark Lewis, Deflorate is multifaceted death trip: beautiful, evil, and morbidly addicting.

I started listening to TBDM with Unhallowed, and have been a huge fan since. Nocturnal is probably my favorite album
from the last three years, so this cd had an unreasonably high bar set to reach for me. The cd stands fine on it's on merits, and if you like TBDM you already know what you're getting here. The new lead player's solo's are kind of hit and miss for me. The real problem is the album just has no identity to me. One listen to Nocturnal, and you knew which songs were your favorites. There are few less stand out songs on this album. The album also comes with a DVD showing the band travel to a few places outside the states on tour. It's fun to watch them goof off, and at the menu you can also select drums. Drums shows you the main parts of about 4 songs on the album with the drummer alone. It's
a great thing for drum players, and you'll have a newfound respect for a guy who has to keep that pace for more than
an hour on a regular basis. If you like TBDM, you'll like Deflorate. It's not the masterpiece Nocturnal was, but it is still the best metal album you're going to get this year. 4/5

The album begins with great haste and the style you've grown to love about the Black Dahlia Murder; the first track, "Black Valor" is a familiar track but nonetheless brutal. We then proceed to the single, "Necropolis" which has a catchy, repetitive melody that builds up with the song and thrown in is a nifty solo from the new guitarist, Ryan Knight. This track absolutely has that 'party vibe' to it we know the band has, but never loses the death-edge they also maintain. Trevor's vocals are definitely a highlight to the album, while you would think of him as an addition to the instruments, Trevor holds his own on this album, and you hear it. The shrieking sounds the same as the last two albums, however, it is his monstrous bellow thats taken "fine-tuning". You can actually make out damn near every word he roars out; he's enunciated his vocals and it absolutely works. The album never slows, and keeps a steady rhythm, but you can tell the songs apart giving each track it's own identity(and easy to pick out your favorites)-destroying any notion of a "one-track album"-something they've receieved criticism for but means nothing to the fans..
You will hear all the Carcass/At The Gates influences; all the thrashy, melodic black hardcore metal throughout the 10 tracks. "Chirst Deformed", an incredible song, has a breakdown midway through with Trevor belting out a punk-ish, hardcore chant that'll make you want to pump your fist. The last track, "I Will Return", begins with a solo reminiscent to Lamb of God's guitar work then explodes into a speed metal warzone with a damn catchy melody to it with a blast-beat backed chorus; most definitely a catalog favorite..
Every aspect of the album is top notch, the band, vocals and production.

This is thought to be one of the weaker albums from The Black Dahlia Murder based on most reviews and fan comments I've read but I disagree and was pleasantly surprised. This was a transition album for the band after changing guitar players and I think the change in the bands sound caught some people off guard but when you hear the follow up to this album, Ritual, you can tell where the band's sound has evolved. By they time Ritual came out the band had gone from having many similar sounding songs on an album to each song having its own distinct sound and a clearer melody in each song. The new album, Everblack, comes out next month and I'm hopeful that it's as good as the rest of their albums.

First of all, this review like all others on music, is 100% opinion. thanks to the internet we can all go to a certain video tube website and listen to entire albums before we buy.

Solid album through out. Lot of energy. There first with guitarist Ryan knight. Being a fan from the beginning, I do think this is there best work yet (since the original line up changed).

The type of music that The Black Dahlia Murder play has never been terribly original, but it still manages to sound quite unique. It is a thrash and black metal-inflected brand of death metal. And it fuses in some undeniably strong hard and grindcore influences, too. The resulting musical product is very technical, brutal, ripping, and wound tighter than a clock spring. But it isn't totally blown-out chaos, because no matter how fast and intense a song gets, it always retains a central, adherent groove, and there is always a contagious, soaring melody not far off. The end result is a sound that falls somewhere between Carcass, At The Gates, Arch Enemy, Lamb Of God, Slayer, modern Napalm Death, Dying Fetus, Cephalic Carnage, "Symbolic"-era Death, Cradle Of Filth, Necrophagist, Behemoth, Decapitated, Kreator, The Crown, Suffocation, Morbid Angel, and Dissection.

The band's fourth offering, 2009's "Deflorate," opens with "Black Valor," which is vintage Black Dahlia Murder, with its fiery, machine-gun riffs, great drumming, and rabid, foaming at the mouth vocals. A memorable, shouted vocal refrain and a well-placed breakdown are included, here, too, as is a Children Of Bodom-style guitar solo. "Necropolis" takes on a more groove-oriented approach, and although its deft, pounding drums and thundering rhythms make it still quite slammin', this number is actually a standout from a melodic standpoint, as its solo is wonderfully epic and infectious. Shannon Lucas' drumming is again excellent throughout the succeeding "A Selection Unnatural." He drives the beast forward with airtight blasting and impeccable double bass pummel, and even is allowed to toss in a couple of cool, propulsive drum fills (one at the beginning, and one midway through the song).
